        Writing Norfolk

          Join teacher and author Dr Alistair Cormack for a relaxed exploration of creative writing inspired by Norfolk. No experience is necessary and lunch is included.

          Norfolk provides a remarkably rich literary landscape. Though the place offers constant inspiration to the literary imagination through its landscape and wildlife, you may have wondered how to channel your feelings and responses into creative writing.

          This course will begin by looking at some of the wonderful writing about this region and move on to offer workshops on participants’ creative writing about Norfolk. Texts will be provided.

          In the first half of the day we will read poetry, prose and essays together and discuss them.

          In the second half of the day we will explore the environment of How Hill and respond through our writing, taking inspiration from the place and the texts read earlier in the day.

                  Printing From Nature

                    10am – 12.30pm or 2pm – 4.30pm

                    Capture the abundant flora of Summer at How Hill in this experimental printmaking workshop with artist Tara Sampy. All materials and refreshments are provided.

                    This is a creative hands on workshop full of discovery, surprises and exploration where you get to make and take home your own set of gorgeous hand-printed works of art.

                    Monoprinting is great fun and really absorbing. Each print is unique and works simply by transferring ink from one surface (plate) to another (print). Working with the sensitive textures and shapes of plants, you’ll enjoy experimenting with the endless possibilities of this medium.

                    Over the session you will explore a variety of techniques using layers, textures, stencil masks and colour combinations. Come along and lose yourself in this engaging process, and go home with some truly amazing results.

                    All welcome – No experience needed – just bring an apron!

                    The price includes all materials, exclusive use of How Hill house and gardens and all the tea and biscuits you could ever want. The tearoom will be open from 11am – 4pm, or you are welcome to bring your own picnic lunch.
